Just a thought.

As much as I rail against the Catholic church and everything it stood and stands for, there is no arguing that this is a beautiful place.



Mission San Jose, San Antonio.

Imagine if the true nature of Catholicsim were as beautiful and as real as this place.

You notice how beautiful it is Adam, because there are no people around. THAT is what religion and spirituality should be about - you and your "god" - that's all.

Beautiful pics - thanks for posting them.

Reminds me of my early days at the Trappist monastery in Kentucky. Very peaceful.

Just a shame I no longer believe.

Beautiful. I think that much art like this was intended by the artists to be an accesible representation of true spirituality, to directly oppose the hypocrisy of the Church.
